SIV (Synthetic Initialization Vector) is a two-pass AEAD block cipher mode of operation described in RFC 5297. It can be used either for key-wrap (nonce-less deterministic authenticated encryption) or, with a nonce, for conventional authenticated encryption with maximal tolerance of nonce reuse.

What's the consequence of having a short IV? Is one mode better in that case?

I've read lots about null-length IVs being bad for most modes. In a scenario where passing a 128-bit IV along with each message isn't feasible, how would generating the IV from a smaller passed-along ...

AES-SIV security

I am invesigating the AES-SIV (rfc 5297) based block cipher. The construction of the S2V is lying on the AES-CMAC and dbl and XOR operation. Given a AAD the size of L and in the 128bit block ...
